“The brighter the light, the deeper the shadow.”

★★★★✩

I actually got this book in London last summer and I only read it recently. It feels like both a shame that I kept postponing to read a great book like this and a win for finally reading it! It was very different than expected, but I really enjoyed it really. I think book two, Godsgrave, is more going into the direction of what I originally thought.

First things first: I absolutely LOVE Mr. Kindly, even though I still have no clue how to properly pronounce it (Like ‘kindling’ OR ‘kind’ as in nice.) But that doesn’t matter.  It is a cat-but-not-really-a-cat made of shadows and I love the whole idea of that.

So much has happened this year I thought I would talk about it in the last post of 2018. Firstly, I finally got to do a bunch of History courses at university which was amazing because last year was great and I got to do some fun random courses but I’m here for the history and I was so happy to do a majority of history courses this year!

I also was able to travel more which was so fun and if you’ve been following me for a while now you know travelling has been one of my biggest goals.
